I was speaking to my farmer boy just before and he told me he thought I would have much better chances of raising some big bucks in my auction if I made something useful. Some thing practical. A cushion is all very nice and all, but a beanie is better.
I hope he's wrong.
I was loving the calming watery blues and greens but then the sun came out and changed everything and so I added some purple and pink.
Michelle's gorgeous pattern has five rows of petals but I'm thinking mine might need one more round before its finished. Maybe a red or a burnt orange. Did I just consider orange??
I just visited the biggest haberdashery shop I think I've ever been to and they looked at me funny when I asked if they had any round cushion inserts. Is that such a strange request? Well they didn't of course but they did suggest I buy a round velour Bratz cushion to fill my cushion. Sorry but NO WAY!! No Bratz cushion even for the inside.
Did you notice I'm sewing in the ends as I go? I am being so strict with myself on this one otherwise I'm scared I'll never do them. Jazzy's rug, my first ever crochet project still has all the ends undone.
Because I had to take a bit of time out from the cushion making yesterday to deal with our own water issues I might not finish this by Monday. I wonder if people will bid on a work in progress. Hmmmm...
So do you wanna see the back of the front?
So how are you? Are you auctioning? Buying? Making? Sewing in the ends?
Bye for now. XX
